ABSTRACT
A graph representation called Multi-Terminal Determinant Decision Diagrams (MTDDD's) is proposed for the semi-symbolic transfer functions of analog integrated circuits. With multiple numeric terminals (instead of only terminal 1 and terminal 0 in Determinant Decision Diagrams - DDD's), MTDDD's can describe naturally numeric coefficients that arise from semi-symbolic analysis, where some circuit parameters are considered symbols and the others are given as numeric values. Similar to DDD's, MTDDD's are capable of representing a huge number of symbolic/semi-symbolic product terms in a compact manner. An efficient DDD-based algorithm is described to construct MTDDD's. Experimental results have demonstrated that semi-symbolic transfer functions for practical analog circuits like ?A741 can be generated in less than a minute on a Pentium-II 450MHz PC.
